Ever marvel what occurred to all these nice ideas about heading off carmageddon made to Mayor de Blasio by activists? Our cartoonist did, too.
Day-after-day brings extra proof that town is just not going to do sufficient to forestall automobile drivers from overwhelming our streets as transit ridership stays depressed.
You realize what else is depressed? The spirit of livable streets advocates.
“I’d say that nothing is happening,” Danny Harris, the manager director of Transportation Alternate options and a member of the mayor’s ignored floor transportation panel, recently told Gothamist. “We supplied our experience and help, and we heard nothing again, regardless of repeated followups.”
Harris instructed that he’s not dispirited by being ignored, however by the mayor ignoring the problem.
“This isn’t about our want to listen to again. The mayor’s lack of motion has lethal implications on our metropolis and our streets,” he stated.
Effectively, as our cartoonist suggests, no less than Hizzoner can be heat all winter.
